    Shutdown logging

    I am having a problem finding where the shutdown porcess is logged in SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8.0. I went through the Systems Guide and didn't find any clues. During shutdown do messages get logged to a file?

    all logs are kept in /var/log. the shutdown log is called wtmp. you should go take a gander at other log files for fun too, like message is the kernel log. and you will obviously need super user privaledge to read most of the logs there.

    to see all that happens during shudown just go to the appropiate runlevel script in either /etc/rc.d or /etc/init.d, depends on distro. the file for shutdown should be called something like rc0.d, or possibly halt.
